In Loving Memory of Christa (nee Rednau) Polano, 71 years. Peacefully, Thursday, September 10th, 2020 at St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, with loving family at her side.

Beloved wife, best friend, and soulmate of Italo Polano. Loving mother of Maria Polano, Allan Polano, Sabine Stanley (Tony), and Maike Polano. Cherished Omi of Sara and Kelsie. Dear daughter of Anton Paluselli and Martha Boer both predeceased. Dear sister of Bella Zahn (husband Joachim). Sadly missed by nieces and nephews and loving family in Italy and Germany, especially the Knorr Family.

Christa enjoyed travelling extensively where there was sun and sand. Christa and Italo owned and operated the Trevi Restaurant, where their hospitality brought much happiness to their patrons and their families. Christa was an excellent cook whose recipes were appreciated and enjoyed at the family dinners, which often included neighbours and friends, and which she took great pride in making everything perfect and delicious. The priority of her life was her family. She was happiest when in their company. The light of her life will be cherished by all who knew and loved her.

Resting at the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury. (Friends may call 2-4; 6-8pm Monday with parish prayers at 3pm).

So very sad to hear of Christa's passing. I will always remember her 50th Birthday horseback riding, many fabulous meals at her and Italo's table. Some of which she and Italo hunted themselves. Her kindness and the welcoming way she had to make everyone feel special. Her love of family and her great sense of humour. Italo, Sabine Maike, Al. Maria Sara and Kelsie please accept my deepest condolences. Christa will surely be missed.

Dearest Maike & family: I am so sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to all of you, and please know that you are in my thoughts. I will always remember your mom fondly as a warm and wonderful person who always made us feel welcome. Though the grief may seem overwhelming right now (and rightly so), I wish you peace in time.

Love, Daniella

I am so saddened to hear of Crista passing. I have so many good memories of her at the trevi and the times we shared in the wine cellar. Deepest sympathy to all of you. Anne
